Meeting with Representative Moulton’s Regional Director: Ask Representative Moulton to stand up for human rights for all, including Palestinians

Fri May 20 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am EDT

Join Activists @ 9:15 am  at Representative Moulton’s Office, 21 Front Street, Salem.

Do you know Israel has designated 6 Palestinian human rights organizations as ‘terrorists’ with no evidence? Continued documentation of Israeli violations of international law has already been curtailed as a result.  This designation has global implications for all human rights organizations. We can’t allow human rights organizations to be shut down at the whim of heads of state.

Activists will gather to deliver a petition to Rep. Moulton. This petition, signed by over 900 Massachusetts citizens, demands that Secretary Blinken and President Biden condemn the classification of 6 Palestinian NGOs as terrorists. Activists will urge Representative Moulton to pressure the Biden Administration to call upon Israel to reverse this action.

The outlawing of the 6  Palestinian NGOs is an authoritarian action that exposes these organizations to the risk of being shut down and the staff to imprisonment. Palestinians rely on these NGOs for support when the Israeli government violates their human rights. We stand up and say NO to this and YES to ALL human rights. We ask Representative Moulton to do the same.

There is still time, so if you haven’t yet, please sign this petition!

Please contact susantnicholson@comcast.net or 978-283-5030 if you have any questions.
